Part 1 begins with a map of the program, which begins with a computerized business technologies program in grades 11 and 12 that leads to entry-level employment or one of two 2-year programs (microcomputing technology and office administration technology) at a community college that in turn lead to a technical career or transfer to a four-year college or university.
